Right to Hunt and Fish Coming Under Fire in Arizona!

Monday, September 13, 2010

Please Attend Town Hall Meetings to Counter the Attacks!

Proposition 109, Arizona’s proposed amendment to constitutionally protect your right to hunt and fish, is coming under attack from anti-hunting groups like the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) and their friends in the media.  We need our members help and we need it now!

In an effort to educate the public on the ten proposed amendments on the ballot this year, the Secretary of State is hosting a series of
town hall meetings to discuss each provision.  At each of these meetings, Prop 109 will come under fire from animal “rights” activists and we need our members to attend and show their support!  Bring a sign, wear a sticker, and put a bumper sticker on your car or truck.  Don’t let the radical animal “rights” groups dictate the future of hunting in Arizona!

The first town hall meeting will be held on Wednesday, September 22 at 7:00 p.m. in Phoenix.  It will be held in the main auditorium at the Gateway Community College, located at 108 N. 40th St.


Please attend and show your support, let the media know you are the NRA, and this November you are going to vote YES on 109 to protect YOUR right to hunt and fish!


Anti-hunting forces are beginning to fight against Prop. 109.  HSUS’ Wayne Pacelle led the anti-hunting radicals last week in a press conference announcing formal opposition to Proposition 109.  These extremists will bring their proven tool bag of public deception and try to frame a permanent constitutional protection for hunting and fishing in a negative light.  The proposed provision contains language that specifies that laws and rules regulating hunting and fishing “shall have the purpose of wildlife conservation and management.”  This is specifically intended to remove politics and emotion from wildlife management.  This concerns Mr. Pacelle and his followers because they operate solely on politics and emotion on every level.  Many quotes capture his radical anti-hunting beliefs and agenda. One quote in particular explains the deceptive tactics, incrementalism and patience he utilizes.  It is from an interview recounted in Bloodties: Nature, Culture, and the Hunt by Ted Kerasote:

Interviewer - "About fishing ... do you avoid campaigning against it because there isn't a ground-swell movement in our culture to eliminate it?"
Wayne Pacelle - "That is correct. We're out to minimize suffering wherever it can be done, and wherever our limited resources can be utilized most effectively—abusive forms of hunting for now, all hunting eventually."

The threat is certainly out there and Prop. 109 protects the invaluable heritage of hunting and fishing for future generations of Arizonans.  Please stay informed and educate your friends, family, and fellow citizens!  Visit
